What Does the End of Mortgage Forbearance Mean for the LBI NJ Real Estate Market

 

What Does the End of Mortgage Forbearance Mean for the LBI NJ Real Estate Market








Long Beach Island Real Estate

One of the many changes to the real estate market as a result of COVID was mortgage forbearance. To recap, there was a temporary pause on some homeowners having to pay their monthly mortgage payments. The thinking behind this program was to give homeowners some breathing room during the height of the pandemic. A little over 7 million homeowners took advantage of the program. As the economy has recovered, most of these homeowners have left the program, but there are still over 1.5 million enrolled. With the end of the mortgage forbearance program, many buyers and sellers are left to wonder what impact this will have on the LBI real estate market and the national real estate market. My prediction? It will have little to no effect whatsoever.

Are Long Beach Island Homes No Longer Affordable?







Long Beach Island Real Estate

For those looking to buy a home in the Long Beach Island real estate market, affordability should be a topic that is well understood. Everybody is aware that prices have risen significantly over the last eighteen months or so. There is no denying that. In fact, in 2021 alone, the average price of a single-family home in the LBI real estate market has risen around 12.5%! This begs the question, are Long Beach Island homes no longer affordable? The short answer is no (but also yes for some buyers). While prices have risen, three factors help to keep a home on LBI affordable. They are:

  • The LBI real estate rental market
  • Very low interest rates
  • Better use of money elsewhere
